NOTES FROM THE FIELD: MICHAEL CLEARY '21

Michael Cleary '21 interned at the International Literacy and Development during the 2020 summer term. The following is an excerpt from his internship report.

Over the summer, I was an intern with International Literacy and Development, a medium-sized Texas-based nonprofit focused on economic and literacy development in a range of low-income countries in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. My path to that role began years ago, when I first began to take some classes at Dartmouth focused on languages and on economic development. For my final off-term as a Dartmouth student, I applied to ILAD, hoping to get some real-world experience within the field of economic development.

Virtual 2020 New Hampshire Democratic Gubernatorial Primary Forum

On Thursday, July 16th, 2020, the Rockefeller Center welcomed the Dartmouth community to a virtual 2020 New Hampshire Democratic Gubernatorial Primary Forum. Democratic candidates Dan Feltes and Andru Volinsky joined Rockefeller Center Senior Lecturer and Policy Fellow Charles Wheelan ’88 for a discussion pertaining to issues in the race for New Hampshire Governor.

While Senator Feltes and Councilor Volinsky hold diverging opinions on a variety of issues, they come from eerily similar backgrounds. Both candidates grew up in working-class families and therefore are strong advocates for the ordinary New Hampshire citizen. Moreover, both candidates have a legacy of experience in the legal world, with Feltes having spent almost a decade as a legal aid attorney and Volinsky having served as the lead lawyer in the 1997 Claremont school funding case and currently serving on the Executive Council for New Hampshire’s 2nd district.
